                                      ITEI TEA TRAININGS & CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

Question raised on some social media networks about why certification programs in tea ?

Holding a Certificate from any school does not mean that the person has sufficient and broad knowledge in that particular field, only that they passed the exams of a specific program designed and developed for a specific level of expertise in that field. So many industries prepare their professionals through various schools and career programs/certifications and the tea industry is no exception. Of course motivated people can learn and experience a lot on their own but it's also nice to know that there are wonderful schools out there that can help in a more structured way including work-based experience and guide the students when it comes to various tea careers or tea business models. School is where the experts are expected to share and pass on their knowledge and expertise to the next generation. The more sophisticated the tea industry becomes, the more tea chains, tea houses, tea rooms, etc., open up, the more structured, tea careers need to be. In today's competitive job market, being certified for a set of skills is an advantage. Sylvana. P. Levesque, Founder of International tea Education Institute (ITEI)
